    Welcome to the Lab at Konnoak Elementary School!

     My name is Mrs. Smith and I am delighted to be teaching science at Konnoak!
    This is my third year teaching science at Konnoak, and I LOVE it!  We have a lot of fun learning about many facets of science and exploring why and how things work.  The students at Konnoak make my job an absolute pleasure because they are so curious, bright and willing to learn!
    I hold teaching licensures in Elementary Education (K - 6), Music Education (K - 12) and Reading (K - 12).  My past teaching experience includes science specialist and fourth grade teacher at Sedge Garden Elementary, and orchestra director and creative music teacher at Northwest Middle School and North Forsyth High School.
    Music is still a big part of my life!  I have been conctracted with the Winston Salem Symphony since 1998 as a double bass player. 
    I also enjoy reading.  My favorite kind of books are scary ones, especially those by the author Stephen King.  He has written over 65 books, and I have read almost all of them - more than once!  I also love Harry Potter, Twilight, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Percy Jackson and Judy Blume books.  I earned my  Masters degree in elementary reading from East Carolina in 2015 because I love to read so much!
    I live in Winston Salem with my husband, three cats, two birds and, of course, Curry the tarantula!  My husband and I love to travel.  We have traveled all over the world, sometimes taking high school students with us to learn about world cultures.  Some of the places we have traveled to are Greece, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Alaska, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.  Later this year we will be traveling to Iceland, Kenya and Ireland!  I'll be sure to bring back pictures.  You can check out the map that shows where some of the destinations we have visted are located on our planet.
    I am looking forward to an awesome school year!
